Archery Program Starting Soon

Bridgewater Recreation is pleased to again be offering its Junior Archery Program in conjunction with Ace Archers. The program offers instruction to children eight years old and up, and is run by a nationally certified Level III instructor and Win & Win Master Coach. Students advance at their own pace; practice and instruction is given for all levels. The five-day program emphasizes safety while teaching good archery form and technique. Archery is an activity that provides exercise, improves math skills, teaches etiquette, requires focus, reduces stress, and is FUN!

The clinic will run for two hours each day in the lower field at Scotland Field. Class will be cancelled in case of inclement weather, and will be rescheduled.

August 15 - August 19 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

The cost is $100.00 per participant ($125 after August 10th) and includes the use of all needed equipment. Due to safety concerns, class size is limited to 20 participants. Registration forms are available online by clicking here or at the Recreation Office, 90 Cottage Street, Bridgewater.

An Advancement Award is presented on the last day that demonstrates the student’s progress through the 10 levels of achievement.

Bridgewater Recreation started offering the Archery program several years ago as an alternative to the more common team sports. In addition to participating in a sport, the benefits of participating in archery include mental focus, self-discipline, and social interaction. The program gives returning children a chance to develop and improve their skill while beginners have the fun of learning a new sport. The great thing about archery is that you can progress at your own rate. Archery provides a unique sport experience complete with exercise, mental control, and social interaction.
